, there are a couple of deadlines. the deadline for the expiration of the bush i've era tax cuts, the obama tax cuts that help the economy, and the deficit. raising the ceiling on the debt. my feeing is they probably can go past january 1 but not far past it. and still not fall off the cliff. around january 15th. >> so now if there are to be some real groundwork laid by congress as they return after the holiday weekend, what really needs to get done, if we look at over the next six weeks, even though you say we've got past january 1, what should they try to accomplish this week? >> well, i think they need to start to spell out spending cuts. i mean, the president has made clear what he wanted in the way of additional revenue and there are a couple of different ways of getting there. now the president has to talk about the spending cuts that he is willing to accept. he needs to give republicans cover to come on board. right now, the list of republicans that are willing to come on board is very short. and he's just not going to get there with that list. he needs to talk specifically about how he's goi

in place by previous presidents. secondly, if you have obama care in place, people don't have to worry about being cut out of health care because health care insurance will now be universal and will continue at whatever age you are. so i think there's more maneuvering there as well and they visited 100 congressional offices, 90 democrats and they did hear the ice cracking up with the republican, no new taxes pledged. and if you don't restrain entitlement spending, it eats up all of the money that you want to spend on education, infrastructure, or the big problems that we have done in this country, like sending the money to the moon or building a highway system. we want to have the ability to have that kind of money to invest and you can't do that if it grows unabated. >> let's say he gets most of what he wants. what is next? and how much is he going to achieve? andy, the same question to you, so think about that. >> first, i think he will fulfill some of the promises that he made in the first term. immigration reform. and more energy, clean energy. i think he sees that as a big job boo
